The Sketch Engine workshop will showcase functions, workflows and tips on using Sketch Engine. It will focus on less known functions and procedures. It is not intended as an introduction to using Sketch Engine. The participants do not need to be Sketch Engine users but it is useful to have some experience of using corpus software.
The workshop is free of charge but registration is required. Select the option during conference registration. The number of participants is limited on first come, first served basis.
The workshop is BYOD (bring your own device). Get your laptop ready to try some of the feature yourself. There will be practical tasks. A tablet or mobile is possible but some functions may be less easy to use.
This part will focus on being more effective when using the Sketch Engine interface.
